Mexican meat demand analysis: A post-NAFTA demand systems approach
Clark, Georgia Rae
MetadataShow full item record
Estimates of the parameters of Mexican demand for beef, pork, and chicken are determined using demand system methodology with the most recent data available. Updated cross-price and expenditure elasticities are estimated to support a more accurate analysis of the effects of prices and income on Mexican demand for meat in recent years. A test for structural change is included to examine if preferences have shifted meat demand elasticities in Mexico since the NAFTA implementation, but the test does not determine a definitive shift in demand.
